Bottle. Pours cloudy gold with medium head. Citrus-floral aroma. Unlike (and bettter) than most wheat beers. Much hoppier. Lemony flavor with a gumball-like aftertaste. Probably the perfect summer brew. Zeswaft (1785) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 7, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2008 Doesn’t really taste at all like a wheat beer. Tastes like most of the other 3 floyds, ie. very hoppy. does have a characteristic lemmony flavor though. I really like this beer, probably the best wheat beer i’ve ever had.. rerate, this bitch has definitely changed over the years. honestly, it’s hops and water. almost no complexity. one of them is great but after that you might as well drink miller lite.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2005 Smells of sweet wheat, caramel, some hoppy bitterness, and a background note of bubblegum. Golden color, quickly dissipating head with slight lacing. Hoppiest wheat beer I’ve tried. Nice melding of hops and wheat. Namesake is slightly apparent in the aftertaste. Thin and crisp with light carbonation. Great for the summer, but not something I could drink every day. axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a big, foamy, white head. Aroma is citrus and flowers. Smooth malty taste with a grapefruit and piney hop finish. Definately the hoppiest wheat I’ve had. Quite enjoyable. green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 13, 2005
Light with normal wheat beer particulate mater. Big hops. Dry grass flavors and slightly sour flavors. Finishes nicely. Totally unique (to me) and enjoyable combonation of APA-like big hops and the smoothness of a wheat beer. A remarkable beer.

22oz bottle. 46°. NB worthy glass. Hazy gold color with a small head. The aroma is killer. Hops are perfumy with a predominate citrus smell. Taste is a typical wheat beer with a great hops flavor and a very small hops bite, that gives it a nice citrus finish. Finish is citrus with a tiny amount of hops bitterness that almost elicits a pucker. This would be about the perfect summer beer, light, but with a nice flavor. The mouthfeel is light and crisp.

Golden copper color, clear, with medium head and lacing. Very hoppy aroma, pine, mild skunk, citrus. Wheat is fairly low in the mix, hop bite and spicyness take over, what I imagine an imperial pilsener might be. Sweet yet finishes dry. A refreshing, if very unique, beer that I presume lives for summertime. Styles (2016) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JAN 22, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2011 #300 Pours crystal clear golden yellow, nice rocky head, decent lacing. Grapefruit/citrus zest up front. Hints of bubblegum. Flavor again hop forward, nice citrus, juicy orange and grapefruit zest. Lightest malt sweetness in the backend. Lingering hop profile. Cleanest bottle I’ve had, no yeast esters to speak of. Well attenuated. Medium carbonation. Well done. RAYBOY01 (2010) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2005 Good, refreshing wheat, with strong grassy notes, surprisingly strong hoppiness, and citrusy finish. Good
stuff on a hot summer afternoon.
Rerate: 4/7/05 3Floyds Brewery: This great wheat has been clarified and hopped up...much to my enjoyment! BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 20, 2005
22oz bottle: Slightly hazy golden yellow with orange hues and a medium white frothy head. The aroma from this beer really makes you want to just dive in and drink. Flowery hops, lemon, citrus, tangerine, with a sweetness all the way through. Not the usual wheat beer aroma. When I taste is, the initial flavor is all hops - a combination of lemon, grapefruit, tangerine - but not in excess. Towards the middle there’s notes of sweet cotton candy, wheat, lemon, grapefruit, mild banana, clove, and grass. Finishes dry with some wheat & grain notes, and a lasting bitter lemon/spice hops taste on the tongue. Best american wheat I’ve tried to date.
